Hate is strong

It’s been a long and difficult week. One of those weeks where you just have to throw something because life is so freaking unfair. I found out a good friend of mine is dying, my health is rapidly deteriorating, our country is full of people who hate each other over politics,  a friend’s child is in the ICU, I have a sister who is sicker then I am at the moment, the school shooting in Connecticut today, it just seems that life is full of hurt and pain. I keep thinking of a line in my favorite Christmas song “I heard the bells on Christmas day”

“And in despair I bowed my head:
“There is no peace on earth” I said,
“For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.”

This is how exactly how I feel today, but I am holding onto the next verse:

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep
“God is not dead, nor doth he sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
With peace on earth, good will to men”

  1. This post touched my heart. I am very sorry to hear about your friend. It's really hard loosing a friend. I just lost my of life 3 months ago. Please lean on me for support if you need any.

    I'm having one of these kind of weeks as well. So much is piling up. My family is getting frustrated again at my illness and it's pushing me to the edge of moving out. I'm trying to hold on. Just know you're not alone.

    I'll keep you and your friend in my prayers.


    1. Thanks so much Meg! It's so difficult dealing with family, I totally understand. So many people just can't understand why we can't do things the way they can. I hope you are able to work things out with your family.
